That would be quite an honor, because one of your photos is my desktop background!

There are a few pics here, one might work:

This is one of those bikes that,let's say "Is just a badass" . Me and all my KTM buddies can't explain it. This bitch runs like a scalded ape. We have tried to shed all the weight that we can,we are getting close. Installing Galfer rotors next week,then we weigh her.

And for good reason...

Here's a good reason to warrant a prepped hoist kit like Alleycatdad's...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=729772

I ride this trail as a local tune up when work keeps me busy. It's generally not recommended for the over 500lb club, and especially not on a hot day with a worn tire. The top of the summit is up there, with steep sheer shoulders throughout. I'd say a hoist kit is well worth it's weight in a case or duffel.

Fo Shur!

The 4mm is harder on the hands, but a clove hitch on a 'biner helps that significantly.

Zipped up. In addition to the stuff in the pic above, there's a big 4mm loop (about 5' diameter), another about 3', and a few odds n ends. The bag is about 11x5x4 inches.

Tonto the Pink Horse is one of those strange things that can make you happy and sad all at the same time...

She hasn't posted since 2007 and her TankGirls.co.za has had no activity since 2010. Wonder if she's still riding? Makes me wonder about the fate of Tonto. Is she permanently in stable?

From her TankGirls website...
